 *   K12 = "Primary and secondary education", typically education up to age of about 18 (the term 'High School' is largely North American too!)
 *   University students = 'Tertiary education', 'Higher education', first or undergraduate degree students
 *   Graduate students = Second or research degree students (Masters, Doctorate etc). There is a certain lack of clarity whether 'grad students is a subset of or disjunct from 'university students')
 *   In terms of educational audiences, there's also an important group missing from the list of examples, and that's Adult education (which itself could be broken down into vocational and non-vocational), also sometimes called 'Continuing education' in Europe.

Hi Peter,

Excellent work.

I recommend linking to the Web Annotations WG instead of the DPUB TF

Because some of these questions will be irrelevant to some respondents, I recommend making all questions optional.

Question 4: target audience. Is there a way we can make this multiple choice? Perhaps:
K12 students

Except that... "K12" is an Americanism. I had no idea wha that means until I began to talk to you guys...

University Students
Graduate Students

That again may be unclear outside the US. Actually... I am not even 100% sure what it means. I am not a university person but I remember my son was talking about "Master student", "PhD student", or "BsC Student". What corresponds to what?



Question 7: I think the wording might be a little confusing because we are asking both whether existing tech is sufficient and insufficient at once. Perhaps, break it into 2 parts. (What) do you use to associate additional with your content (multiple choice). Then free-form, do you find this sufficient, please explain.

Question 9: I am not sure that this question will be clear enough. Perhaps, we need to clarify what we mean by re-usable. Re-usable to whom? I think this is targeting the publishers in the audience and the question is whether the publishers are re-using content chunks.

Question 15: Massive collaboration is listed twice

Question 17: Do you want respondents to specify which tools are in use? Perhaps clarify what you’d like to see in comments.

Question 29: I am not sure what you mean by non-web. Is this offline? Print?
